The CR-20S is only as long as it is because Branson made it using the same housing as the CR-20. This model (AM44C20ST) mounts the connectors and ground lug directly in the insulator disc of our CJ-20 replacement model (AM44C20), making the housing about 1.25″ (32 mm) shorter overall, the same length as a CJ-20. Making this model shorter lets us leave off the machined aluminum cap that makes our CR-20S replacement model (AM44C20RS) about the same length as Branson’s, but if it the extra length doesn’t matter to you this model does exactly the same job as our CR-20S model (AM44C20RS) at an even lower price, Maybe Branson already builds one like this. Maybe if they don’t they will some day.
The AM44C20RS model is a modification of our AM44C20 that incorporates the SHV connector and 6mm OD push-in air fitting. These units will be made to order from in-stock parts and are available for shipment typically within two business days from receipt of your order.
All of the components used in construction of these converters are all new, not recovered from scrapped units. These converters are made in a highly controlled and repeatable manner to duplicate the performance of the OEM models. The parts are made from certified materials in tightly controlled manufacturing processes, assembled and tested in a climate-controlled environment using carefully calibrated equipment, then properly aged and re-tested to ensure performance that duplicates the OEM part. The entire process is conducted in a ISO registered facility. Best of all, since the manufacturing process is so carefully controlled, durability is assured.
Our converters do not look like a Branson CR-20S even though specifically designed to replace them. Chrome plating is expensive and non-functional, as is grooving the housing. We note that many suppliers who copy Branson’s appearance also use the CR-20S model designation, possibly to cause buyers to think they are getting a CR-20S made by Branson.
We worked very hard to incorporate functional improvements to the OEM design to make these units more durable. We left no stone unturned to try to give you the best product anyone knows how to make. We are proud to make a unit that looks different and probably outperforms the OEM unit. As with replacement parts for automobiles, often the aftermarket part is much better and less expensive than the OEM part.
We offer the same warranty as the OEM, namely, three years one-time replacement. Simply ship the broken unit back to arrive within three years of original shipment, and it will be replaced (one time) if the failure is the result of a defect in material or workmanship. See the warranty link below for the particulars.
We believe this is an excellent option for those customers desiring the excellent reliability and value of a tributek converter in a machine-mount configuration.
